The following video discusses the explosion of knowledge and how the United States is ill equipped to deal with it. Set to the music from Last of the Mohicans, I guarantee you will feel like Chingachgook fighting Magua when its done. Tired.
At least in the movie, the good guys win however. The jury is still out about whether the good guys win in the brain competition with Asia............
Make sure your speakers are on....and a glass of scotch is on your desk. You will need it if you are paying attention.
Chingachgook: The frontier moves with the sun and pushes the Red Man of these wilderness forests in front of it until one day there will be nowhere left. Then our race will be no more, or be not us.
Hawkeye: That is my father's sadness talking.
Chingachgook: No, it is true. The frontier place is for people like my white son and his woman and their children. And one day there will be no more frontier. And men like you will go too, like the Mohicans. And new people will come, work, struggle. Some will make their life. But once, we were here.
